Wearing | The Swing Dress

I once heard a quote from the fabulous Sarah Jessica Parker….

“You should never spend more on a sweater than you do on your grocery bill”

I was a little surprised to hear that Ms Parker did not follow in Carrie’s footsteps on the matter. In my mind Carrie is a real person strutting around NYC and one day we shall meet and be the best of friends.

Although I was surprised to hear it, I happen to agree with her. Im all for wearing quality and ethically made clothing but sometimes I think (myself included) we need to put our foot down when it comes to spending outside of our means.

In saying that everyone’s ‘grocery bill’ is different. What I spend on clothes may seem like an extravagant amount to some while being peanuts to others.

At the end of the day it’s important to know your limits and stick to them, not just swipe your credit card and pray to Zuckerberg. I can’t say I always stick to this motto, but I am trying. Sometimes true love strikes and nothing is going to get in my way of said purchase…. Still, I am trying to be better.

It was on one of my trying to be better days that I spied a Cowl Neck Swing dress in Target, even better it was only $39.

Cowl Neck Swing Dress- $39 (im wearing the 14)

Now I have always steered clear of high neck lines as I am quite blessed in the chest, I have always known that a Vee neckline is my go to.

I decided to try it on anyway and to my surprise I think it works. The swing hem line helps balance out the top half as does showing a little leg.

I also love how versatile it is, I will be wearing it to work, play, with my pleather jacket, or even my denim jacket. It’s already a nice edition to my Autumn wardrobe and for $39 can you really go wrong?

 

What about you, have you bought any Target bargains lately?
